    Destination Disk

    When I start my computer this message appears: "Feature you are trying to use
    is on a CD-ROM or other disk that is not available." Then it says to "insert
    Destination disk." I just cancel it and everything's fine, but does anyone
    know how to get rid of that annoying message?

    Thanks,
    Patrick

    Something you've installed (or that came preinstalled if you have an OEM
    machine like an HP or a Sony) is trying to add features and needs its
    install CD. Unfortunately, there's no way for us to know what that
    something is. Look in your Startup to see what's there. It will be probably
    be something that you've recently installed. HP printers are also notorious
    for misbehaving this way.

    Start Orb>Start Search box>msconfig [enter]

    If you are prompted for an administrator password or for a confirmation,
    type the password, or click Continue. Then see what is on the Startup tab.
    You don't need to restart immediately after you make changes, but the next
    time you do you'll get a dialog saying you've used the Utility. Usually in
    Vista this will be blocked by Windows Defender and you'll need to allow it
    so you can then tick the box that says in effect, "don't bother me about
    this again".

    Important - Do not use the System Configuration Utility to stop processes.
    Instead, use Start Orb>Search box>services and do not stop any services
    unless you really, really know what you're doing.

    The free Autoruns program is very useful for managing your Startup -
